I’ve made a plan to visit this fusion tapas restaurant since last year but did not have a chance to do it. Luckily, I stumbled upon the busy restaurant just when the sky expected me to hide under the umbrella.
Although the restaurant was super packed both inside and outside, the staff managed to find a quiet spot for me at the back of the restaurant, where I could relax and took a sneak on the kitchen activities.
To make things better, the food and drink did not take forever to come out.
Pear Bellini ($13)
A refreshment that would clear up your mind.
BBQ Lamb Ribs ($14)
It was fall off the bone tender, succulent, and juicy. Every bite of it revealed a savoury sweetness, combined with some crisp and excellence! Once your mouth meets the sensation, it will end up wanting more.
Prawn Dumplings ($12)
Prawn Dumplings 2
The dumplings got some heat kick on them. As my tongue could not tolerate the heat, I did not finish it. Nevertheless, it was toothsome.
Just when I felt that my stomach was starting to bulge out, one of the lovely staffs asked me if I wanted to get a dessert. Being a foodie I am, I could not reject her offer, despite hesitating for a few seconds.
Mum, I Dropped My Ice Cream ($12)
I Dropped My Ice Cream
If I dropped my ice cream and ended up inventing such delish treat, I would call myself a genius. Talk about the creamy sweetness, crunch, and the shy tanginess.
I’m super glad that I finally got to try this awesome restaurant. Rice Paper Scissors offers quality food, quality service, and comfy interior. It doesn’t matter whether you just want a quick lunch or a bonding session with your relatives, you should check this place out.

Corner and Bench is a minimalist and relaxingly set café located on the corner of Bourke Street x Hardware Lane. I would totally recommend this place for first dates, or if you want to complete any tasks in quiet while enjoying some good coffees.
I opted for the Three Amigos ($13). It was a tad salty for my preference, but still enjoyable. The tortilla was super soft and the beef was appropriately tender. It was slicked up by the tangy flavour and a hint of fiery taste. Not forgetting the sweet yet crunchy corns.
While the food was enjoyable, it was not out of this world (or awesome). BUT! I will come back for the other menus and the soothing interior.
